Oriel have threatened to restrict the College library opening hours in response to the surge of vandalism incidents that have taken place this week.The damage includes several broken chairs and a “flagrant disregard for library regulations”. Charles B. Watson of the Oriel Classics Departmemt wrote a letter to all JCR members, condemning the vandalism and the consumption of food and drink in the library, which is strictly forbidden under library regulations. He has Urged anyone with information about the broken chairs to come forward. He warned that, “If those responsible for the broken furniture do not come forward or if library regulations continue to be ignored, the Governing Body will take drastic action at its next meeting, Wednesday of 4th Week. The current proposal is to close the library from 10pm-7am.”James Pickering, a third year, PPEist, said, “I think its fair for the College to act in this way. People have been taking trashy food into the library and stinking out the place. “It just seems absurd for people to transgress the rules in this way and as far as I’m concerned there is no need for it. Of course it is a massive hindrance. I do know people who work in the late hours of the evening and will find it very difficult if the library is closed over night. But I can’t see any other way of getting people to stick to the rules, which I think are completely reasonable”Nick Gallagher, a third year Classics and English student, said “Oriel’s library is open for 24 hours a day, this is obviously a tremendous resource. “I would certainly find it an inconvenience if the library was closed overnight and my work would suffer as a result.”

The Rams have agreed to extensions with coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead through the 2023 season, the team announced Friday.The move will keep together a tandem that is credited with not only helping turn the Rams into an offensive powerhouse that became NFC champions last season but also is regarded one of the top coach/GM pairs in the league. Philip Rivers ‘loves’ Melvin Gordon, but Chargers seem content with ‘deep’ running back group “Sean and Les have been a dynamic team and have been integral in developing a culture that has allowed our players and entire organization to thrive,” owner Stan Kroenke said (via NFL Network).Snead, 48, joined the Rams organization as GM when the team still was in St. Louis. It was there that he selected future All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald in the 2014 NFL Draft, but it wasn’t until two years later — after the team moved back to LA — that he made a career- and franchise-defining move when he traded up in the 2016 draft to select quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick.That move came on the heels of his taking running back Todd Gurley in 2015.That 1-2 punch, however, didn’t come to fruition until Snead and the Rams hired McVay, the Redskins offensive coordinator who at just shy of his 31st birthday at the time became the youngest head coach since the start of the NFL’s modern era.All McVay has done in his two seasons at the helm is lead the Rams to a 24-8 mark, consecutive NFC West titles and a spot in the Super Bowl last February. WOOOO! Les get to work!McVay + Snead are extended through 2023! 🙌— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) July 26, 2019″I’m very thankful to be a Ram for many years to come, working with great ownership, people, coaches, and players,” McVay told NFL.com. “It’s exciting to get camp going and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves up and get to work.”No terms were announced, but NFL Media described the extensions as “lucrative.” Related News Ezekiel Elliott contract: Cowboys star seeking record deal, report says In the process, the Rams last season ranked in the top five in the major offensive categories.A loss to the Patriots in the Super Bowl leaves some work undone, and Friday’s announcement assures that McVay and Snead will be running the team when it is scheduled to move into its lavish new stadium in 2020.
